Thomson's Lanmno, Feb. 4th,
As is the case everywhere els.) in the
district at present things aro very quiet.
One great desideratum in this oountry
is tbe fact that winter enforces absolute
rest. Tbis is oot oo acoouot of the
severity of tbe climate, but because we
bave no roads to get abont on, But in
all likelihood this will be tbe IsM winter
we shall spend in forced seclusion. With
tbe coming of the R. at A. L. Railway to
the mouth of tbe Arm aud the construction of the wagon road to Trout Luke it
is not too much to expect that next
winter will see a number of sleighs
hauling ore from the Lardeau mines to
tbis point.
The weather has been vory mild so
far, with about 24 inches of snow on tbe
ground. There is one good featnre
about this country���we never get any
blizzards or any wind at all, the winters
being delightfully calm aod fine.
Tbe pack animala have wintered well
on the prairifr so far and are in excellent
condition. Mr. Beaton is feeding them
ouee a day now, but they still find considerable sustenanoe in tbe meadows.
Most of us are suffering from what
ytrtl might call a typographical disarrangement, We are very short of X's
and V's and have far too many I O U's.
On tbis account those who hold tbe
IO U's will bave to be patient until we
oan got in a supply of the muoh-needed
X's and V's, which we hope to be able
to do in tho spring.
Pete Walker, Tom Downs, Lochie
MoDonald and Dave Ferguson arrived
here from Revelstoke esrly in tbe week
aod are gone in to Tront Lake. They
are going to take out ore from tbe Silver
Cnp, and expect to bave 1,000 tons on
tbe dump by the 1st of July.
All tbe miners on Lardeau Creek have
been very successful this winter. Jack
Knowles and Charlie Matbuson bave
taken out $500, while Joe Bissett and
partner have done even better. They
have taken out $1,500 between them, all
in coarse gold.
Dan Savoy and Jim Carey are taking
ont from $10 to $15 a day each when
tbey are able to work. Altogether there
has been abont $5,000 taken out of Lardeau Creek during the year.
The bridge gang erecting the bridge
over Fish Creek will bave it completed
in about four weeks.
We are very pleased to hear that tbe
good people of Revelstoke are doing all
is tbeir power to seonre tbe construction
of the Lardeau wagon road this year.
As we bave four high-grade mines ready
to ship ore this road is all that is required to plaoe us amongst the ore*
producing districts,

a dangerous opponent in case he enters
the field.
Action Against a Restaurant
A Popular Verdict,
John Colotto, restaurant keeper, was
summoned before Magistrate Fraser on
Wednesday last week for selling intoxicating liquor without a lioense. Mr. H.
Conrsier occupied a seat oo the benoh.
The following was tbe evidenoe:���
J. I. Woodrow said he knew defendant. Was served with ale in the restaurant on three occasions during January.
Paid for it. Was served by defendant's
employe, who might have been gone
long enough to go to a hotel for it.
A. Whitlook said he was a waiter in
Colotto'e restaurant. Served liquor to
peoplo on different occasions. Reoeived
payment for it, wbioh be banded to Mr.
Colotto. Served both beer and brandy,
with exceptions, from stock kept in tbe
house. Had served last witness from
stook kept in hooss. What liquor was
bought from saloons io town was sold at
40 per oent. profit. What was kept in
stock was purchased both locally and
from outside dealers. Was not acquainted with Mr. Blackwood, Knew the man
from Winnipeg as a customer io the
restaurant. Conversed witb Mr. Colotto
about having liquor in tbe bonse. Co-
lotto said he would bave two barrels of
beer from Blackwood after being introduced to him. Blackwood Bent four
barrels. Would swear he sold some to
onstomers. Declined to state whether
he said "If Colotto did not setile with
him he would bave him arrested for
selling liquor without a lioense." The
beer Blackwood sent wu left on tbe
premises. Saw it in tbe cellar. Declined
to answer if he had a postal card from
Mr. Blackwood.
Cross-examined by Mr. Fraser: Colotto
never bought less than half a dozen bottles from local hotels at one time. Never
bad any of Blackwood's beer from local
hotels. Tbe local beer was sold at 43 to
45 per cent, profit. A dozen bottles obtained frofn Mr. Brown cost about $3.50
and was sold at 60 cents a bottle. It
oost a little lees at the local brewery.
Bought beer from Vancouver and Winnipeg. Ordered two barrels reoeived
from Vanoouver.
By Officer Kirkup; Wine was sold by
Irk* bfttle, handy by tbe diiah. told
both wine and brandy while he wat?'
there.   Received direct orders to sell
brandy by thc glass.   Three nights previous to leaving he Bold seven minks of
J. Kirkup, constable, Baid delendant
did not hold a license to sell liquor on
the premises.
Leo Franois! Am a mitor in Colutto's
restaurant, Never sold liquor from a
bottle by the glass Have gone to hotels
to gel beer for customers, Have sold
beer that I did not know when, it cume
from, Heard Whitiuck tell Colotto that
if he did not settle with iiim he would
havo him arrested. Colotto slirapged
his shoulders. Have seen a band of
beer come into tbe house. Never 6eeo
more thun a dozen bottles of beer iu the
restaurant at one timo. Helped to carry
beer down cellar aad put it on Ihe
shelves, Retnrned all money to Mr.-
W, M. Brown, hotel keeper: I know
defendant. He told me I conld have tit
barrel of beer ss mine ��n> run out. >
think a small dinner party oould go tc*
tbe restaurant aud coubuoie half a dozen
bottles of beer. Should either return1
defendant's beer or pay him Ior it. Co-'
lotto placed a barrel of beer in my cellar
and told me I could uso it, which I did/
as mine was ruu oat,
W. Cowan, hotel keeper: Some beer'
belonging to defendant was put in my
cellar; one barrel or more, I should
think a dinner party wonld nse half &
dozen bottles of beer.
John Colotto: Am a restaurant keeper.-
Do nol keep beor in bulk on my premises. Mr. Blackwood cann, in fur breakfast, uud just as be wus leaving Whitiuck
came in and introduced bim to me, raying he was a friend of his, uml if I
wanted any beer I could give him au
order. Told Whitlock it was illegal aud
did not give Blackwood uu order, as
there was plenty of beer in the town I
oould get whenever I wanted it. Some
days after several barrels of beer eon-
signed to me arrived at my place, and I
was surprised to find myself io the
wholesale liquor bnsiness. I also re*
oeived a postal card which stated that I
mu��t take great care of the beer or the
cold weather would spoil it, I took the
beer to tbe hotels mentioned. Tola tho
proprietors I would sell it tu tbem. It
took the boy Francis all his timo getting
one or two bottles at a time, so I had
them brongbt iu by tbe half dozen������
Whitlook threatened ine ���with legal proceedings if I did not settle up, at which
I shrugged my shoulders. Obtained te
bottle of brandy for customers whs
wanted cognac and coffee. Whitlock
did not carry out my orders. Though1,
Whitlock would hardly sell beer witbouf'
orders. All the beer business was transacted without my orders. Whitlock waf
nnder tho influence of drink ut the time-
It is customary in large towns to test)-
to neighboring hotels for liquor when1
required. When two cases ol beer arrived from Yaucouver I took it tc the
hotels so as not to get into any trouble.
Thought the boy could go to the hotel**'
for beer for customers. Paid 25 ceut? tt'
bottle and charged 50 cents.
The case was adjourned to Wednesday'
last, when the magistrates rendered t>-
verdict in favor of defendant, belfev.-tig
that Whitlock's evidence was unreliable.
The decision meets with the approval of
the public.

Amcv,g many things about electricity
puzzling to the average miud iu the production of motion and tho method by whioh
electricity ia made to propel street cars.
The principle by which electricity producca
motion is a very simple one anil one very
generally known, and observed, It is nothing more than magnetic attraction. Every
oue ha? seen a magnet attract and pick up
a needle. This aamc attraction is what
propels a street car. The simple fact that
magnets attract and repel magnets is the
one that explains hew electricity produces
To see how this is we will first observe
how a current of electricity produces magnetism. If we take apicee'of iron, and coil
some wire around it, ss shown in Fig. 1,
and then pass an electric current through
this wire, the irou piece becomes a strong
magnet, On the current ceasing, the magnetism disappears. If we reverse the
direction of flow of the current, we reverse
the magnetism ot lho iron, and causo the
former north magnet-pole to become the
south pole, and vice versa.
Now, simply noting that similar magnet-
poles repel, ami dissimilar magnet-poles
attract, we cau proceed to an understanding of the case, In Fig. 2 there is shown a
form of motor generally used for toy-
motors. On each side are the poles of a
magnet marked N and S, In the centre is
the revolving part or armature with the
projecting arms. Around each arm is wound
acoil of wire, thus making eaoh a magnet

set of wires around all the surface of the
cylinder and thc resultis a steady magnetic
pulf that makes thc cylinder rotate. The
application of suoh motion to propelling
cars is, of course, obvious. In Fig. i is
shown au outline of an electric street-car.
The current Hows from the wire overhead
down the trolley-pole and along the circuits,
indicated by dotted lines, to tho motors
beneath thc car, then through the wheels
to the track and thus to the generating-
atation. Ill starting the car, the current
is let into the motora gradually through a
rosi8tauce-eoil of wire, whioh acts like a
throttle-valve. The resistance is gradually decreased to nothing, just as a valve is
slowly opened to full gate, To reverso
thc motors and make tho car run in the
opposite direction theflow of current around
the armature or revolving cylinder is reversed. This is done by a simple switch-
The electric street-car motor is hung
between axlo of the car and a centre
supporting-brace.The rov olving drum or
armature gives motion to the car-axle
and wheels, through a pair of gears,
which reduces the speed of the car-wheels
below the high armature speed. From this
short account of how motors run, it is seen
the matter is a simple one to understand.���

when an electric current ilows through the
wiro. The wire.il will be noticed,is connect-
edatintcrvalsto thu little black sections (K)
representing metal segments which are
arranged in a circle and separated from
one another by pieces of mica, or insulating
material, represented by tho white spaces?
This is called the commutator. Pieces of
metal called brushes arc shown ou opposite
sides of this, rubbing on tho metal strips
and oonveying in this way an electric current from the connecting wires shown. Let
a current How in, as indicated by the arrows, and observe what happens, Tlie projecting ends, a,/,, c,etc., all booomomagnet
poles from the onrrent flowing through tho
wires around them. Tlio po'ea a ami 6 are
made north magnet-poles ami are drawn
over toward the magnet S, while c becomes
a south magnet pole and is repelled from
S. Similarly on the other side, tl and e
become south magnet-poles and are attracted toward N, while / becomes a north-
magnet pole and ia repelled from N,
The result, it it readily seen, gives a
revolving motion to the right in the direction that the hand i of a cloMc move. As this
star piece revolves, the black or metal
segments rub against the contaot-pieo is or
brushes shown on each side, In tho position
shown, these brushes are just about to leave
the metal segments between b and c an 1 ,

and the magnetism oi these poles is rev ���-
ed, and they aro then repelled from 8 and
N, aud so the motian is kept up. Attraotion
ami ropulaion act on each one of the projection? n, (>, c, etc, so that they ar
over, down toward S aud up l war I \. in I
then repelled up, away from N, aud down,
away from S.
It wo wish tho direction of the rei
changed, we change the direotion   I     \  I
current, so that it flows in from the wire
to tiie top and right and out at th.
and left.
Forgood reasons the form oi e tr ���
motor generally used differs Bomewhat
from the one put described, Ch ��� revolving

completed the w.re* cover thoBurfa, i of
the cylinder, the ends being oonnocted, as
shown, to the separated metal leg i
comma's,' ir   .
To nndersi in 1 the a tion here, we must
note the fact that a wire carrying a current
hecomsa a magnet and is attracted nnd
repelled by magnets just as magnets are by
c��';h other. Consider then this cylinder
covered with magnetic needles, as it were.
Magnct-poies placed nn each aide of the
cylind-.r. similarly to Fig. 2, would attract
the nee lies or wiros an 1 cauae the cylinder
to turn until these wires reach tho magnet-
poles, when the cylinder would stop. But
i-eiore thc-e wires reach this point the current is cut off irom thorn, and they oea-ao to
be magnets, the current flowing Into othoi
wires bcyon 1 them, thus shifting Ihe paint
of attraotion ami keeping up the motion.
As soon os a wire paisos the point where
it would stop wire the current, oontlnuod
through it and no other wires uaed, th".
current is ��ent through it in a re.vorso direction, and it is now repelled hy tho mag-
ntt'SOle ond thus driven around, and of
course attracted by the opposite magnet-
pole, where a similar action ol slopping
and rovorslng the current ia continued.

Uow n French Count's Life Waa Saved hy
Ills Heroic Wife.
Ono of the most touching stories in the
history of these French prisons from which
so many political offenders have been sent
to the guillotine is that of Count Lavallette
and his heroic wife, The count was imprisoned in 1815 in a Paris prison���one of
the many victims of a reaction in political
feeling. Ho was condemned to the guillotine. I5very effort was made by liis wife
and friends to obtain his pardon, but in
vain. When he had but forty-eight hours
to live bis wife came to him and explained
a plan for his escape, He protested against
it, but she was firm, declaring, when he
spoke of the risk to herself, that she should
surely dio if ho perished by the guillotine
At five o'clock on the day before he waa to
be executed, the countess camo to his cell,
accompanied by their little daughter
Josephine and by a friend, Madame Du-
toit. She wore a long cloak aud brought
with her a black skirt. She said to her
" Everything is ready. Theso things
will disguise you perfectly, At seven
o'clock you must take Josephine's arm and
walk out, Step gently, and cover your
face with your handkerchief, Unfortunately I have not been in the habit of wearing a veil here.so I dared not bring you one

The next two hours wero passed in great
anxiety. The family had to make a pretence of eating dinner, Cunt Livallette
had to take leave of the friends win came
to bid him farewell. It was decided that
when the gaoler came to the cell after the
count, disguised aa the countess, had departed, thc countess should remain behind
a largo piece of furniture so that thn gaoler
could not see her distinctly enough to Eee
that she was not the count. Of course discovery must cw.r.e soon, but a littlo time
gained would probably save the count.

"The Old Lady of Threadncr-dli* Slrecl"-
Ciiriostties <>r Die lliuik ��l' "England���
The Bullion Roora-HIIIIOBs InSight,
The " Old Lady of Threadnoedle street"
is known in every nook and corner of the
earth. Her reputation is of the very be3t.
Her correspondents number thousands,
She is continually sending out notes.as well
as receiving them. Tens of thousands of
people have been made happy by her notes,
and as many unhappy by the loss of them.
The Bank of England,familiar to millions
as the " Old Lady of Threadneedle street,"
is one of the most interesting places iu London to visit. Most parts of the bank can bo
visited in a business way, but a view of the
most interesting departments can only be
obtained "by permission." The stranger
in the city in passing the bank would readily suess that the building was a place of
some importance, and more than likely he
would connect it wdth having something to
do with durance " vile," for, tho fortress-
like appearance the bank has, generally
impresses strangers with the idea
Up and down in tront of tho main entrance paces a man, whoso coat of red, cut
like a steel pen, plug hat with wide gold
lace band, shows that hc is an official of the
bank. He is not only ornamental, but useful as a cab-door opener, and receiver of
tips. Just inside there ia a much more important looking individual, whose uniform
is even moro resplendent than the outside
man's. Hia cloak is heavily braided with
gold lace, and his bat boasts three corners
to it. His duties are to direct people in the
way they should go. The mention that 1
was the possessor of an order to view the
bank, immediately brought him to attention, and following tho diiections given me,
in a few minutes I was in charge of the official who waB to pilot me through tho labyrinth of offices, corridors and vaults.
is one of the most interesting sights in the
bank. All the gold and silver that enters
or leaves tho building must past through
the bullion office to be checked, On lho
left is the silver, on the right is the gold.
Under an immense glass stands the machine used for weighing gold. The machine,
as my guide said, " is tho most delicately constructed of its kind in tho world."
It is kept under glass, an the smalleat particle of dust would make considerable difference in the scales. Access to the scales
is had by means of a sliding panel. In order to give an idea how delicately constructed tho scales are my guide said that
a single hair could bo accurately weighed.
The scales are fitted with weights amounting
to 400 oz. and in weighing tlio gold the dit-
ferencoof one thousandth part of an ounce.
In  another  room are several machines
for weighing sovereigns and half-sovereigns.
Each machine consists of a complicated system of counter weights.and like the machine
used for weighing bar gold, these are en-
j tirely enclosed in glass cases.   The feeder
consists of a long.narrow trough into which
, a sovereign will fit exactly.   The trough is
filled with sovereigus and one by one they
drop down on a movable plate, a very little
larger than the sovereign itself. If the coin
is O.K. it disappears down anothor tube ou
the right oi tho plate, but if it is light the
I machine throws it to the left.   Theso ma-
! chines can each weigh 1,509 sovereigns or
' or half sovereigns an hour,   Ou busy days
I there are sometimes 150,000 pieces weighed.
A piece of bank paper is whisked through
thc rollers of the press, passes over tho en-
��� graved plate  slides along the tapes and
! comes out more valuable by ��50. Tne well-
; known signature, " F. May," which is not
I too familiar to the unemployed, will soon
give place to thc signature of the new chief
cashier. The "old lady" ia very particular
about the material she has her notes printed on so she has a private paper mill where
; all her bank note paper Is manufactured.
The water mark is not really a watermarks
the mark beiug made by a wire twisted into
the design, so that when tho pulp settles
down tne paper is thinner on tbe wire than
; any other part of thc paper.   The papor on
whicli the notes arc printed ia made from
new linenior cotton.and a note will support
a weight of thirty pounds before it is used.
If ihe nolo proper is of the right size ; it
' will also support a largo family for niontha.
Each machine is capable of turning out
2 l,0C0 notes per da/.   When a note is received at the bank.
even though it has beon in circulation but
few hours. It requires a large staff of clerks
i to attend to the checking and cancelling of
the notes received over the counters during
the day, The daily receipts will average
��150,000. Each note h��s to bo entered
upon books, then tied up in bundles to bo
plaoed in vaults where they are kept for fivo
years, after which tiiey aie consigned to the
ilames. Onco a week large numbers of bank
notes are destroyed by being burned In a
furnace specially constructed for that purpose.

by which bank notes may have been wholly
destroyed or partially the bank will make

accidently torn into minute fragments,
perhaps burned or otherwise-destroyed the
bank will make good, but there must bo
some remnant of identification left. I was
shown a very small heap of ashes covered
by a glass. The ashes were all that were
left of forty ��5 notes, but the bank had
been ablo, by the aid ol a strong microscope, to identify the notes, and the owner
of tbo money was made happy by the
presentation of forty new, crisp notes for

It was for ��1,000, but it was paid in much
shorter timo than had tbo payment been
aaked for iu notes, for just as a grocer
would serve sugar so did the paying teller
sene his "sugar." He just dipped a brass
scoop into a drawer, dumped his tako into
lho scales, carefully inspected the indicator,
added a few more sovereigns, then quickly
dumped the heap cf yellow boys on tho
counter, and tbo customer waa left to count

system, from beginning to end, ia under

arrangements are so complete that at a

had with any part of the building. There
has been no attempt in many years to rob
the bank, by burglars, but, as a bank official told me, there aro many cases, whioh
tho public do not probably see, where

no funds, or

j little pleasantry into Terry's ear,���aome
littic trilling thing apropos of something
going ou over there where Miss Bridget is
sitting,��� and Terry has lifted ber flowerlike face to his in answer. Almost for the
firat timo her eyes look calmly, steadily
friendly-wise into hie. Sht smiles at him.
Trofusis's heart givoa a bonnd, Never has
j Bhe seemed ao near to him as now, in thia
hour, in this her own home.
Larry, unfortunately (his eyea are never
very far fom Terry), sees that  glance ot
hie,   and  Terry's  answering smilo.   Ho
turns abruptly away, and grows almost
boisterous in his attentions to Geraldine
Anson. Ho is evidently telling her a story,
vivisecting one of the near neighbors with
I a view of bringing a laugh to her lips,���in
1 reality to let terry see that hia heart ia
void of even one touch of pain.
|    " What is it, Larry?" asks Mrs. Adare,
who knows all her brother's  moods and is
now very sorry for him.   Perhaps she too
has seen that littlo  growing  towards Trefusis in Terry's air, aud has understood,
1    " oh,  nothing.   Onlv   that old story
about  the duchess.   You remember  it?
About tho night she was playing backgam-
mon at the Mackcnzies', you know."
I    Ho laughs lightly, but falsely, as hia sis-
tor knows,   "If yon don't,  Terry will,"
says he, lookingatraightat Terry. It seems
1 to him uow as if he must bring her attention back to himself andaway from Trefusis,
' if only for a moment.
j    " Yes, I remember," says Terry, smiling
sweetly at bim over ber teapot.
|    " I don't believo it," saya Misa Anson.
I    "What!   That she doesn't remember?"
I    " Oh, no, no, no.���Misa O'More, isn't ho
silly ?   Of course she remembers ; women
I always lemember���afterwards !"   She says
thia with a strange, swift glance' at Tre-
fuels, that seems  to  warn him of trouble
in  tho future   connected   with   Larry.
"I   mean   that   I   don't    believe   that
' story of yours,���Your brother," turning to
Mrs. Adare, "aays that tho duchess was
once playing backgammon with Sir Darby

too much for her, and finding that Sir Darby
was winning, she concluded that one of the
dice was a filbert, and swallowed it."
|   " What a remarkable story I" says Miss
Anson,    " And���what happened ?

throwing up her handa. "And it   wasn't

slipped, aud was carried out by the temperance man."
" Oh, was he ?" says Miss Anson. She
looks perplexed. " And what was the subject?' asks she, curiously. She is certainly
terribly English.
At this Mr. Kitta turna away sadly and
reproachfully, leaving Larry to explain.
" Whiskey," saya that young man, in a
cheerful tone.
Providentially at this moment something
occurs to change tbo current of their
tlio-'ghts. It is the afternoon post; it consists of one letter for Terry, who, letters
being very rare with her, seizes upon it,
and, after a little glance at Fanny as if to
ask permission, tears open the envelope.
Sbe Instil! reading it, when Max, swooping down upon her from behind, snatches
it out oi her hand.
11 Now," cries he, darting away with it,
"you tol 1 me yesterday you had noseorets
from any one, to I'll read this out loud."
He holds up the letter teasiugly, as if about
to begin.
" Max!" cries Terry. Thero is something
so sharp, so agonized, in her tone, that Tro-
fuais starts, and looks at her. Her face I

I that is surely fear.
I    "Max, give mo back my letter," aays alio
' trying to control her voice, but failing.
I "Max, doyou hear ?"
,    She is actually trembling. It is fear,then
that is stirring her! Trefusis feels suddenly
as if everything has given way beneath him.
Only a moment ago,and his path had seem-
I ed firm, sure ; and now the earth bad suddenly opened.   Ho had never been no sure
:as in that moment ago.   He had told himself that all was coming right with her and

Terry turns her large eyes on his,
" Get it, get it for tm !" says she. Larry
takes a quick step forward, seizes .Max   by
the neck, and adroitly pulls the letter  out
of his hand.
" Hero it is," says he, holding it cut to
Terry, whoso fingers closo over it with a
most unmistakable haste. Trefuais moves
abruptly away. Whatever tbis letter
���means, and it occurs to him that it means
nothing, ao far as either he or O'Moro ia
concerned, still it was to O'More sbo had
turned for help ; not to him, tho man sho
has promised to marry.
It is another little fillip to the already too
great auger that is burning in his bosom.
The letter���it was not from him or from
O'More; certainly it was then from a third.
How many lovers haa sho ? And who is
this last one, of whom no word has been
uttered up to this ?
With an impatience that scorches him,
but that he hides so completely beneath
the sell-control tint nothing can ruffle, ho
waits until the last of Terry's guests have
driven away from her door, and then turns
j..tp her.
" I want to speak to you," saya he,
" To spoak to me ?"    The girl stares at
him, lost in wonder.    What does tho cold
anger iu his face mean ? She, onco tho letter
was returned to her, had thought nothing
more about it, bad not understood that it
might be a subject of thought to others.
She bad beon taken up with her guests,
and had scarcely had timo, even if a!,o had
| knowledge of it, to take notice of Trofuais's
coldness,    " You wish to apeak to mo ?"
" Yea," says he, strong diopleaaure in
bis tone.
"Well, speak."
"Not here, whero wc may be interrupted;
in the garden."
"Come, then," she takes tho initiative,
going, indeed, quickly before him, not
.ipe iking another word until tho sweet precincts of the garden aro gained, Hero alio
"It has always been ao peaceful bore,"
saya ahe. " I have had nothing hateful
said to mo hero to make it and to mo."
"Hero or there," aaya he, remorselessly,
"I shall speak to you."

through tho protty hedges, and then stands
"You had a letter thia afternoon." Hiu
air is rather too liko tho counsel ou the

Terry looked at him with great aurpriao.
"Yea, you know that," says alio. His

remembrance of what that lotter contained,
brings a bright and beautiful flush to her

There is passion in bis tone now. Terry's
delicate faco (lushes. She hesitates. What
does it all mean ?   What can she Bay ?
"I ' begins she, faintly. She stops.
The fi'op is fatal.
" Don't be unhappy about it," says he,
coldly. "Y'ou need not answer me. Your
face, 'with a contemtuoussmile, "isenswer
enough. And your agitation wheu your
brother seized that letter,���your fear lest

"Well,"says Terry,interrupting himhur-
riedly, "it was my own letter. Even supposing all you say to bo true,that I did not wish
you to aee it,���still it waa my own letter.my

" Nothing to do with me!" His face is
as white as death now, his tone quito steady

" You mean ?"
" I moan," steadily, " that you ought to

" You moan that!" Her voice is almost
a whisper. " You insist?" says she, faintly.
Her manner, that has something of shame
in it, maddens him. Shame! Shame in
that proud littlo faco!
"Yes. I insist," he declares, coldly,
brutally, though his very heart ia torn
within him.
Slowly, very slowly, tho girl draws the
lotter from her pockot, slowly too withdraws it from its envelope, and, still holding it tightly in her trembling fingers, as
though her very life depends upon thc keeping of it, looks at him.
"You do insist ?" she asks, miserably, It
is as though she is craving pity from him. It
is plain to him that she would rather die
than give up this lettor.
Half boaido himaelf with rage and bitter
disappointment, he can only aee one side of
the question,���hor evident reluctance to
give him the letter. What be cannot 8ee
ia that she is giving him a last chance to
keep and hold her forever.
"I do I" he decides, with icy determination.
"You suspect me, then, of something?"
Even to herself, so hurried has all thia been,
she cau hardly place the miseries of this
most miserable hour. Of what does bo suspect hor?
"How can I help it?" His eyes meet
hers with a hard glance, He holds out bis
"Tho letter," says he.   It is a command.
Terry lays it on his open palm.
To his everlasting dishonor, as he owns
to himsef afterwards, he oponB it, and
reads. And as ho reads, tho very pains of
death Beem to get bold of bim. Thero is
so little to read, but how much it meaua

oven greater than bis crime.
He crumplos the letter convulsively in
his hand, But not all the crumpling in the
world can shut out from his sight the words
that be within it. They are burned indelibly upon his brain.

"You might havotoldmo,"saysho, hoarsely.
There is no answer. A very storm of
hatred against him is shaking the girl's
soul. For a while she keeps silence, scarcely
daring to let herself speak. She ia trembling violently, moro perhaps from aome
Budden inward certaiuty that here, now, a
crisis in her life has arrived, than from the
actual circumstance that has led to it.

The New City Directory Shows
.an Increase or Over 3,000.
The Toronto city directory for 1894 has
made its appearance, and must be satisfactory to the people of the Queeu city.
Somo of the statistics which the new directory contains are quite interesting. In
t.he preface the compilers state their belief
that the population of the city is steadily
increasing, and as a proof of this they bring
forward tlio fact that tho number of names
on the directory for the present year showa
an increase of 3,003 over that of last year.
There are at least three times as many
people in the city as the number of names
in the directory. This would therefore indicate an increase of 9,000 in the popula-
lation of the city during the past year.
The directory for 1S9I contains Vo.Ool
names, which would indicate 219,153 of a
population. Tho compilers then goon to
comment on the above statistics as follows:
The World says:���"While we are aware
that this ia a very much higher estimate
than ia made by either the assessors or the
police we are satisfied it is very much nearer correct, and we should here take the
liberty of stating that, in our opinion, anything liko an accurate estimate of the popa-
lation can never he obtained irom the City
